Black Bottom Cupcakes Recipe

I grew up eating these at family barbecues and I finally made them myself just the other day. If you can shape the cream cheese a little as you add it to each one, they end up looking like little hearts on top — a perfect little treat for Valentine's day!

8oz cream cheese, whipped
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
4 egg
1 package devils food cake mix
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 350˚ and line or grease pan.

2. Beat cream cheese, 1 egg, sugar, vanilla extract and salt together in a bowl.

3. In a separate bowl mix devils food cake with vegetable oil, vinegar, 3 eggs and chocolate chips.

4. Fill each cup 1/3 full with the chocolate batter then add a tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on top.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Yields: 30 cupcakes
